    Wat are everyones opinions on the best looking wheels on a mild lifted k5?

    I think i am gonna get MT Classic IIs unless my mind is changed

    I also like the Alcoa by MT Challengers but they dont make them ne more.

    Wheels

    I think you are looking for peoples thoughts on aftermarket wheels? As the best looking wheels I ever saw on a K5 where those factory wide wheels. I think they where 16" dia. and in the 8 to 10" wide range. Just saw some pics. posted of a Coloradok5 member running a set with TSL's and it looked sweet!
    IMO!! Jeff


    If anybody can school me on these wheels please do so !

    I right there with your choices.
    The MT II's or the alcoas almost have a stock look to them. They are pretty cheap and easy to repalace too.

    Steel rims may be a good idea if you are heading into the rocks. How about both?

    I got MT classis II's on mine, like the look, next time I polish em, Im gonna zoopseal em, just cause I dont have time to polish em and keep em lookin good. Front look good for along time, but the rears, with my side exit exhaust, get dull looking in about a month.

    Forget wagon wheels, they went out in the 1800's.....Welds look the best on almost anything, thats the super single series of course. Not the gangster thug Evos.

    i like my eagel 589's better than mickey thompson II's. holes are too big on the mickey's IMO.

    on a trail rig nothing looks better than black steel. very tuff. i plan to swap my 15x8 eagles for 15x10 black rockcrawlers.

    Maybe for something like a 15x8. a 15x12 is around $250 and go up to about $325, which is about what I payed for my 16.5x14's.
